Full slate for ‘Pensacola Speaks’ today

On News Talk 1370 WCOA, we open the show with Pensacola Sports Executive Director Ray Palmer.

Today, Pensacola Sports presented to the Escambia County Committee of the Whole the results of a feasibility study on building an indoor sports complex.

An approximately 120,000 square foot indoor sports complex with competition floor space for 8 basketball and 16 volleyball courts would host a myriad of training, tournaments, camps and other events for sports such as basketball, volleyball, martial arts, wrestling, gymnastics, fencing, team handball, dance, cheerleading and others. The popularity of such sports has steadily increased in recent years with amateur leagues, U.S. Olympic and Junior Olympic training and professional teams.

Palmer will be on the show at 5:05 pm today.

We will also have Sal Nuzzo, vice president of policy for the James Maddison Institute. He will discuss the policy brief “No Place for A Child: Direct File of Juveniles Comes at a High Cost; Time to Fix Statues,” was written by researchers at the Project on Accountable Justice (PAJ) at Florida State University and The James Madison Institute (JMI).

In the second half hour, Escambia County Doug Underhill will talk on the plans for the Brownsville Community Center and the upcoming workshop on the Perdido Key Master Plan.
